American Sales Development LLC’s ASD electric walkie tug reduces effort, strain and chance of injury when moving heavy or unwieldy loads in a manufacturing or warehouse environment. With a capacity of up to 20,000 lbs., on wheeled carts or trailers, it is said to replace the effort of four people. The tug is an electrically powered, walk behind, wheeled cart and trailer mover constructed of formed 1/4" steel plate. It has an internal weight package to add traction. Additional traction is gained by slightly elevating the hitch mechanism, either manually by pushing down on the handle or with an optional electric drive 5th wheel to add some of the weight of the load to the Tug’s drive wheels. With a 36v DC power circuit, heavy duty deep cell batteries and on-board, 5-stage battery charger, the unit can run all day on a single charge.
